THE HOCKEY SONG

Performed by STOMPIN' TOM CONNERS


E                                                      B7
Hello out there we're on the air, it's hockey night tonight
                                                                E
The whistle blows & the tension grows and the puck goes down the ice
                                                             A
The goalie jumps and the players bump & the fans all goes insane
             E                   B7             E
Someone roars Bobby scores at the good old hockey game


       A      E                                              B7
Cho... Oh the good old hockey game is the best game you can name
                                                               E
       And the best name you can name is the good old hockey game



2nd Period

Where players dance with skates that flash the home team trails behind
But they grab the puck & go bursting up & they're down across the line
They storm the creese like bumble bees they travel like a burning flame
We see them slide the puck inside it's a one one hockey game


Cho...


3rd Period Last game of the playoffs too!

Oh take me where those hockey players face off down the rink
And the Stanley cup is all filled up for the champs who win the drink
Now the final flick of a hockey stick and one gigantic scream
The puck is in the home team wins the good old hockey game

Cho...
Cho...
Cho...

Heads up... He shoots he scores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My favourite Hockey song is by Jane Siberry, It sure brings back memories of what it was like being a hockey nut as a kid.

Hockey
Jane Siberry

winter time and the frozen river
Sunday afternoon
they're playing hockey on the river
Rosie...
he'll have that scar on his chin forever
someday his girlfriend will say "hey, where...?"
he might look out the window... or not
you skate as fast as you can
'til you hit the snowbank (that's how you stop)
and you got your sweater from the catalogue
you use your rubber boots for goal posts
ah...walkin' home

don't let those Sunday afternoons
get away get away get away get away
break away break away...

this stick was signed by Jean Belliveau
so don't fucking tell me where to fucking go...
oh Sunday afternoon
someone's dog just took the puck
he's buried it it's in the snowbank ....your turn
they rioted in the streets of Montreal
when they benched Rocket Richard it's true

don't let those Sunday afternoons
get away get away get away get away
break away break away break away break away

the sun is fading on the frozen river
the wind is dying down
someone else just got called for dinner
Rosie!
hmm...Sunday afternoon

Hey thanks guys. This is great. I live in quite a "hockey" town, and having a few of these around is a great idea. Didn't Tom Cochrane have one back awhile? sb

Also -Arrogant Worms "ME LIKE HOCKEY" :

Me work Hard five days a week,
sweeping garbage from the street.
Come home not one book to read,
not 'nuff pictures for me see.
Sit right down in favorite chair,
wearing only underwear.
Favorite night is Saturday night,
'cause me can watch hockey fights.

Me like hockey
Me like hockey

Me not like pro basketball,
'cause me short and they all tall.
Baseball slow like Forrest Gump,
'cept when Robbie spits on ump.
Wrestlemania not so great,
Me like to see Hulk Hogan Skate.
TV socccer not that hot,
you play bad and you get shot.

Me like hockey
Me like hockey

Swedish players must be geeks, haha
'cause they still got own real teeth. hahaha
Not like Finnish players names,
what's a Teemu anyway? hahaha
Russians worst in history,
got stupid names like Valeri. hahaha

Me like Sergi Federov,
Me like him more if head were off. hahaha

Me like hockey
Me like hockey
Me like hockey
We like hockey

Please Mr. Linesman let the players fight
Please Mr. Linesman let the players fight
Please Mr. Linesman let the players fight
Please Mr. Linesman let the players fight
Let them fight
Let them fight
Let them fight
Let them fight!
Let them fight!!
Let them fight!!!
Let them!!!!

Friends come over, put game on,
argue then we lay bets down.
Got bag of chips and case of Bud,
should last 'til end of first period.
But Yankees they win The World Cup,
me think they cheat use glowing puck.
Maybe if we want to winder,
maybe we should play in winter.

Me Like Hockey
Me Like Hockey
Me Like Hockey
Me Like Hockey

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

There's also Jughead's Hockey Song:

THE HOCKEY SONG (Smith, James, Good and Phillips) ©1992

So there I was, over in Paris
Eating wine and drinking cheese
And this guy comes up to me and he says
" Where are you from?"
Well, I says "Yeah, I'm from Canada"
And he says "Zoot Allure, mon Dieu, you are from Canada? Do you play hockey?"
And I says "Do I play hockey?

Chorus
Well, I play Air hockey, Ball hockey, Barn Hockey, Bubble Hockey, Field hockey,
Floor hockey, Ice hockey, Kitchen hockey, Road hockey,Roller hockey, Table hockey, Twist hockey
And I play hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey,
hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey, hockey,hockey all the time!
Take shots!

So there I was way out in California
And this guy comes up to me and he says
" Where are you from dude?"
Well, I says "Yeah, I'm from Canada"
And he says "Wow! Where are you from dude?"
And I says "Look I'm from Canada"
And he says "Wow. If you're from Canada? Do you like, play hockey?"
And I says "Do I play hockey?

Chorus

So there I was way down under in Australia
And this guy comes up to me and he says
" Where are you from?"
Well, I says "Yeah, I'm from Canada"
And he says "Do right, honey child. If you're from Canada? Do you play hockey?"
And I says "Do I play hockey?

Chorus

He shoots. He scores!

Hear the song in Quicktime

And apparently, they have Stompin' Tom's seal of approval:

http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/singerUnid/81DEE6069854E94648256C70000D26C8

But my favourite hockey song is the Grievous Angels' "Gordie and My Old Man", sung form the perspective of a woman whose boyfriend and dad like to watch the game and drink together:

"Gordie and my old man on a Saturday night, watching the Blackhawks and getting tight"

Cheers, Hester
